under the right shoulder, in front of
the Stewart building, by a woman
named Yseult Hudley. The pistol
was thiity-two calibre. She fired five
shols, one only taking effect It is said
she was a nurse, and came from En
gland five months ago. She had an in
terview with Eossa on Saturday at
his office. The appointment- was
made by letter from him to her.
The woman is handsome. She drew
the revolver from her dress pocket
and fired one shot. Eossa threw his
hands above his head and cried, "I'm
shot!" and fell heavily. The woman
then fired the four remaining shots
at the prostrate man and calmly
walked away. A policemau saw the
pistol and arrested her. He did not
know she had shot any one till sTio
said at the station she had shot Eos
sa. She is calm and dignified and
refused to say why she shot him,
but it is presumed through revenge
for the London explosion.
Eossa occupies a cot a short dis

the Irish cause and had adarge sum
of money to help the cause along.
She appointed a meeting for to-day

without a word.
Mrs. Eossa arrived at the hospital

"Previous to the match with Ormes

General C. B. Lamborn, land com
missioner of the Northern Pacific
railroad, in company with Paul
bchulzc, is making a reconnoissanco
of the country lying immediately
north of Yakima river to determine
the practicability of a largo ditch to
supply the great body of land with
water for irrigating purposes. It is
proposed, if arrangements can be
made, to take out a large proportion
of the water from the Yakima river,
at a point near Ellensburg, and dis
tribute the water over an area of
about 3,000,000 acres. Several capi
talists havo made an offer to pur
chase this immense tract of land pro
vided the scheme is practicable, and
that is the reason of General Lam
born's tour of inspection at this time.

A NEW CRIME UNDER THE SUN.
"When old Anderson Bromley an
nounced himself as caudidatc fur
justice of the peace, the people of
Buck Short towuBhtp felt that the
time when they were to have an able
and upright administration of judi
cial affairs had arrived. OldBrnmley
had uevcr opened a law book; there
fore lie was regarded as honest He
had never hesitated to take off his
coat and fight the best man m the
neighborhood; therefore he was-con-
sidered able. He had never been
backward in denouncing his enemies:
consequently ho was regarded as a
citizen of wisdom. "With these ac
complishments. hi3 election, iu the ex
pressive parlance of politics, was a
"walkover."' Shortly after Brumley
took his seat on the red oak woolsack,
a man named Billy Malone was ar
rested for stealing a grindstone.
'This here is a mighty important
case," said the magistrate, wheu the
culprit had been arraigned before
court. "In lookin' over these here
law books, I don't find no mention of
grindstones. It was a big oversight
in our legislature not to put down
grindstones in the books, nr it mout
have been knowed that some blamed
rascal in this part o' the state was a
coin to steal one. Folks in this hero
part o' the country, let me tell you,
will steal anything. "Wa'al in the ab
sence o' any statuary barin on the
subjeck, reckon I'll make this here
charge manslaughter in the first de

would be impossible."
"Wood it? Wa'al, I'll jes show yon

but when he docs fall, there ain't
nothin' that pleases mo so much as
